and their projects have on transit. the issue for me is not so much the substance of what's before us. i may very well agree with what we have before us. but the question is what is the best process to actually get to a change in what happens on this matter, specifically what happens to the nonprofito%(hyf exemption that we're talking about. and i really believe that the transportation sustainability program, theç$( ]5 tsp, is actuy the proper process that will allow for us to make these kinds of changes. let us remember that one of the things that is supposed top6jqsç happen under the tsp is to actually replace the transit impact development fee that we are voting on today. that is supposed to bepúph"t red by the stp. -- tsp. if we are to make the policy changes through the tsp process we need to make the substantive change on the tidf today. and so i also want to be clear that there may be some folks who are opposed to what supervisor wiener is proposing today because they may be oppose happening. and while i respect that view, i don't share that view. i do think that we need to revisit thes
this item but not the use of rainy day fund to support this program. thank you. >> president chiu: supervisor farrell. >> supervisor farrell: thanks, president chiu. thanks supervisor kim for bringing this forward. i don't think anyone here in the chambers disputes the need for this and you spoke well about it. i've always sped if you're going to spend dollars spend it on your kids education and i agree with that. i do have a question as well about the source of funding. in terms of rainy day funds not knowing before the school has anticipated budget surplus going into this year, pulling it from state reserves right now with a $15 million state reserve, i guess i would like to ask ms. howard, pulling it from state reserves, we have 15 million from state reserves right now budgeted, and we're going to take some money from that according to this amendment. question is, from your point of view, from the mayor's staff and from budget office, what are we anticipating for, you know, state cuts, that we haven't seen yet? if it's less than 15 million we should talk about it. if it's more
so we need to benchmark as a city and need property owners to know what their energy use and patterns are within their own property. the second one is to encourage local renewable energy and dg distributed generation and don't need to build new transition needs and local security and keep the dollars in the local economy and to help with us there are a number of recommendations and they're tinkering around the edge of our regulatory process and rules but ultimately we want to work together to drive comprehensive energy policy to support renewables and continue to take the lead on streamlining the processes and working with neighboring jurisdictions to do that as well so we have a standard system bay area wide and include this for local renewals and work with pg&e and we have a robust electric grid downtown and precludes installing renewable energy there and work with the homeowners so they know the options and how to finance it -- >> chair campos. >> commissioner mab. >> can i ask danielle? can you say more about explore and fee and tariff for local renewables. >> sure. we will talk
sutros the palace at land's end with the sutro path area also that used to house the large indoor swimming pools and beloved sounding attractions like the mechanical museum. join me on december 4. if you want more information about historic neighborhood theaters and the theater foundation go to cinemasf.com and join me in supporting our theaters. join us on thursday in about 48 hours for clement time between arguello and funston. lots of great activities and a couple of food trucks will be out in front of green apple and foggy notion. join us for great food, music, free stuff, and a lot of fun. the rest i'll submit. >> clerk calvillo: thank you. president chiu. >> president chiu: thank you. colleagues, first of all i have two in memoriams for today. first i want to recognize the passing of a devoted officer on our san francisco police department, officer philip welsh. he graduated from st. ignatious and uc berkeley and served our city for 18 years. most recently he covered the beat in my district in north beach where he worked closely with our district residents and community memb
, be fiscally responsible. and so our preference is to move forward with the supplemental that would use rainy day and peef baseline funds. and not use any of the state supplemental reserve. none of the options we're talking about includes the rainy day. so would the mayor support or not support any of the three options that we are talking about right now, through the >> supervisor, jason elliott mayor's office, through the chair to supervisor campos. this has been an issue that's been debated and talked about for several weeks now. as the proposal involves fund sources of both and the conversation that budget director howard and deputy superintendent me young lee has been centered around using the rainy day reserve funds which are available, and on using a peef balance which has grown a bit in recent days. so combining those two sources, the rainy day money and peef money does actually total up to the amount requested. so your question to us, as i understand it, is what is the mayor's office preference on funding the supplemental. >> supervisor campos: no. my question would be what would the
to bodies that look at our land use from that perspective, so i would like to support mr. steen in this position and would like to motion that. >> okay, so there is a motion to move forward on mr. steen to the board for this seat on the market-octavia citizen's advicery committee. i just want to say a couple of things. i was one of the members had brought up concerns about insuring that we had a low income perspective in the market-octavia citizens advisory committee. i want to really appreciate mr. wolff for really spending the additional time to do some work and some research around some of the issues that impact our lower income communities and appreciate the time you spent with me to sit down and talk about some of these issues and i think they are much more fleshed out and i understand your perspective a lot better. do you really think that your work is focused around small business development and i think that perspective is incredibly important for this plan, but i think in terms of what the seat is being called for, i think that mr. steen more strongly represents that
to check it out and have an audit done before these people go sit anywhere and let us have a meeting for me to come back and you can tell me what has happened. thank you very much. >> thank you, dr. jackson. >> good afternoon, commissioners, i mean supervisors, eric brooks representing san francisco green party and the local grass roots organization of our city. i'm not going to get up here to oppose any candidates because it's clear at least four of these candidates are profoundly impressive in their qualifications for this type of work. but there is a problem and that is with public process. it's vital to remember that the reason we made sure that some of us fought so hard to make sure that neighborhood representatives were on this commission is that that is right of pa process of appointing them was supposed to entail going to those neighborhoods in depth and getting their input on who these appointees should be. for this to be noticed a few days ago at holiday time is very problematic to that process. just to show an example of why this is so important and why we need to wait until th
what the most expeditious way for us to have a process for a formal selection of an executive officer would be, and that if it is possible the preference would be that we pursue option two and still allow for a selection process, and maybe it is as mr. fried is saying that's not possible, but one possibility might be there is an acting appointment that happens. i don't know that we know enough to know for sure that that is not a possibility. i think that between now and the time that we have our next meeting that we can come back to the commission with a more detailed recommendation that says this is the most expeditious way to have a process. i think that would be the way they would approach it. my preference is that we find -- i do think that there are -- you know, i can go different ways, but i think one of the benefits for having a process whoever is selected if it's somebody already there it adds a level of credibility and mandate to that individual. if we go down that route it's my hope that mr. fried would apply for that and given his experience and what he has done i thin
. something that i think is important to add, is that many of our clients come to us you know, they have been in these relationships that are abusive for some time. and many times we are one of the last calls out that they make. and they lean on the support of family, friends and in a lot of cases, people that are in their workplace for some support, some options. and someone to lean on, unfortunately is what we have heard is that many times the response is that they were greeted with were not productive or posive. and i think that it is important to add that we believe that people have the best of intentions, they want to help people get out of abusive relationships or at least support them with some options. but they, if we don't give the community the tools to do so, workplaces, the tools to do so, and we can't really expect that great of an impact. and it can't all be done by community-based organizations. it is a huge. and we thank you for your support and leadership on this issue. if there are know other members who would like to comment. we can close the comment. >> supervisor olague?
use issues as well. in particular housing and again while i understand that this cac doesn't formally get involved until permits are filed, one of my real priorities in this seat is affordable housing and rental options, in particular given how much of a safety net that they are in the city and as a homelessness prevention measure right now. i think it's important to address the fact that many of the developers in the upper market area have been able to fee out of the inclusionary zoning requirements, which is an important tool as we work to create economically diverse communities within this project area. access to clean safe public open space is something that every resident in this area deserves and every effort needs to be made to prioritize open space preservation and creation. low income populations in particular are more likely to be victims of pedestrian-vehicle accidents so making intersections safer, particularly along upper market, is a priority of mine as well. so, too, are creating pathways in the form of service and support for better life outcomes for existing resident
to be on the board and he got us nonprofit status. well, then he started talking about pedestrian safety which of course i'm concerned about, but to the point that there were times i thought, oh, my god, i hope he gets on to a committee that he can work with so that i don't have to hear about it every day. and that's one of my recommendations for mr. bloomberg to be on -- but actually he really is concerned and he has pointed out lots of dangerous intersections and so forth. so i recommend him to the committee. thank you. >> thank you for being here and also thank you for sharing your story. is there any other public comment on this item? seeing none, public comment is closed. mr. bloomberg, i want to again thank you for your patience and sitting through this rules committee meeting. certainly excited to be able to support you to be a member of psac i think it's also, i did not note this before but it's also important that we represent our seniors that live in the south of market and we have many seniors that live in the south of market and i think it's important that that perspective is

from the task force and use that to move forward on recommendations that we should take forward and timelines of those and more economics on it and the task force didn't delve into that area and some are no or low cost but others like caa have large potential costs to the city and we didn't do that analysis. >> there is financial considerations. there is political considerations, and so if we have a document -- if we go to the next lafco meeting in january -- whenever it is. we will see the schedule later. it might be too quick to do that in a month and a different resolution for that, but i think that si process that is essential that we go to and provide a road map. >> and the last page in the report and lists the recommendations and near term, mid-term or long-term so the next two to three or three to seven or longer term so we started that work but certainly a lot more to do. >> i also have a question on the emphasis on pg&e and i am wondering if you could talk more about that. i am curious why there is equal treatment of clean power sf and pg&e since you have a program wi
